Practical Finite Element Analysis for Mechanical Engineers
First Edition
by Dominique Madier View author's profile page

Overview


This book offers the best practical methods and guidelines available for the development and validation of finite element models. Its objective is to provide mechanical structural engineers with the keys to developing accurate and reliable finite element models by avoiding the most frequent errors

Description


Engineers, in various industries all over the world, increasingly use Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to obtain solutions to problems that cannot be solved with classical methods. However, to do so, FEA analysts must employ proper modeling techniques; otherwise, their solutions may be incorrect.

While there is much information in published literature regarding the theory of the finite element method, there is little on practical FEA modeling techniques for mechanical engineers. Engineers often learn basic FEA rules that are presented in textbooks, but the vast majority learn FEA through years of experience developing finite element models.

This book offers the best practical methods and guidelines available for the development and validation of finite element models. Its objective is to provide mechanical structural engineers with the keys to developing accurate and reliable finite element models by avoiding the most frequent errors.

About the author


Dominique Madier is a senior aerospace consultant with more than 20 years' experience and advanced expertise in Finite Element Analysis (FEA) of static and dynamic problems for linear and nonlinear structural behaviors.

He has conducted detailed finite element analyses for aerospace companies in Europe and in North America (e.g., Airbus, Dassault Aviation, Hispano-Suiza [now Safran], Bell Helicopter Textron Canada, Bombardier Aerospace, Pratt & Whitney Canada, and their subcontractors) on aeronautical metallic and composite structures such as fuselages, wings, nacelles, engine pylons, helicopter airframes, and systems.

He earned a Master's degree in mechanical and aerospace engineering from Paul Sabatier University, Toulouse, France, in 1997.
